Another set of inflammatory ads have gone up in 39 New York City subway stations, paid for by the same group that posted ads equating Muslims or Palestinians with savages last year.

The American Freedom Defense Initiative purchased space next to 228 clocks in 39 stations for the ads, which have an image of the twin towers burning and a quote attributed to the Quran saying: "Soon shall we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers."

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said the ads went up Monday and will run for a month.

The group's earlier ads were displayed in 10 stations in September.

The agency has also sold space to groups that disagree with those messages.
